Lightening the load
Friday, May 06, 2016
It's after 2 am, and I have *finally* finished a couple of work chores. I had hoped to get them done earlier this week but just couldn't manage to get myself into it until today. I decided to stay home so I could focus on work; when I'm actually *at* work I get precious little done because people keep stopping by, and I am very bad at telling them to go away.
And it's after 2 am and I did not snack tonight. That makes it a 4-day streak of tracking and sticking to plan, which is better than I have managed in months. Of course, I am very hungry right now, so it's time to fill myself up with a couple of glasses of water and drag myself to bed.
The college kid is moving home tomorrow for 3 months. Just in time for Mother's Day! I am going to enjoy this summer as much as I can. He's going to move into an off-campus apartment at the end of summer, and I think that will mark his "permanent" independence - he probably won't be spending entire summers at home anymore. So I am going to sneak in as many hugs and smooches this summer as I can; they are going to have to hold me for a while!
